When in the ED, first year residents do 20 shifts, second year residents do 19 shifts, and third year residents do 18 shifts. The length of these shifts vary, as residents do a combination of 8 and 9 hour shifts during the weekdays, and 12 hour shifts on the weekends. Scheduling shifts this way allows our residents who are rotating in the ED to have two weekends off per EM month. There are six night-shifts per EM block, which are done consecutively.
